The payment categories chart can be found here. PERS provides this document in .pdf format. To view it, you must have the most recent version of Adobe Reader®.

Regular reports, also known as Wage and Contribution Reports, are due on specific dates, assigned to employers to most closely match their pay date frequency. There are four Regular report frequencies: Monthly, Semi-Monthly, Bi-Weekly, and Weekly. Report dates for the current year can be found here.

All PERS payments are made electronically by ACH (Automated Clearing House) Debit or Credit methods. Payment transfers are made the 5th business day of each month. The scheduled payment transfer dates change each year and the current year dates can be found here.
